Installing Kubecost

  • The recommended path to install and operate Kubecost is via the Helm chart install instructions available at kubecost.com/install. This chart contains all the required components to get started and can scale to large clusters. It also provides the most flexibility for configuring Kubecost and its dependencies.

  • Alternatively, you can install via flat manifest, but this install path provides less flexibility for managing your deployment and has several product limitations.

  • Lastly, you can deploy the open-source cost model engine directly as a pod. This install path provides a subset of Kubecost functionality and is available here. Specifically, this install path deploys the underlying cost allocation model without UI or enterprise functionality, e.g. SAML support.
